Ruth lives in the beautiful city of Vienna and is wildly in love with Heini Radik, a brilliant young pianist. But her world is about to change forever.

When Hitler's forces invade, Ruth's family flees to London, but she is unable to get a passport. Quin, a young professor and friend of the family, visits Ruth and in an effort to bring her back to London, he offers a marriage of convenience. As Ruth throws herself into her London life, Quin begins to fall desperately in love with her. Things are further complicated by the arrival of Heini....

a warm bubble bath

I don't know why Eva Ibbotson is under the category of "younger readers" in book shops- her stories just a lovely bit of escapism without any gratuitous sex or bad language or violence, which adults can enjoy every bit as much as younger readers and are as soothing to the soul as a warm bubble bath! just wish it wasn't abridged, so 1 less star because it just wasn't long enough!
